BIG Changes

So they finally ARRIVED!  Literally just minutes ago and I haven't even sat on them yet!!!

I don't have a picture of the exact set up prior to this arrival, so this is the best I could come up with...

The Old Couch.

Behind my father-in-law & William is our old red chair (that is now back in the loft).

And now...

Please don't pay attention to all of the Easter decorations that are all over my mantel.  Because we had the carpets cleaned and then brought in the new furniture, we had to put the breakable things up.  That's just where they all ended up and they should be coming down this week, as Easter is over...

The coffee table & end tables are not new.  We bought them at Pier 1 serveral years ago and still look fabulous!  What a great purchase!  Oh and they were on sale at the time, go figure!

We decided that we're going to move that bench under the window back up to the guest room to make some more room for the ottoman, which we didn't have before.


What do you think?

Lovely. :) Will your puppy be allowed on the new stuff? I feel that dogs belong on the furniture... and the bed.

OOh, pretty couches. They look excellent! And now I'm having couch envy as I'm dying to get couches for one of my rooms.

Great choice, I love them. They really work with what you have in the room too.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
